    Mo Claiborne, the sixth overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, has not been good in his short tenure with the Dallas Cowboys. He didn't help his cause on Sunday when Julian Edelman made him look absolutely ridiculous on this slant route.

    Anyone ever seen Homoworld do this before? Pretty much every running play by aflete QBs includes a hold, but never seen anything about that on Homoworld.

    Great GIF! A true microcosm of the Caste System...a white 7th rounder (Edelman) utterly humiliating a black 1st rounder (Claiborne). I watched the entire game and, unsurprisingly, they didn't show Edelman shattering Claiborne's ankles on instant replay.

    well, there's video evidence of Edelman breaking Cowgirls' ankles:

    hehe, Jax beat me to it. but both this and his TD show how insane JE11 is. Better than Welker? Maybe not quite his hands, but the moves...,

    KIA commercial last commercial break: Black kid and black father, black kid gets participation trophy even though his team won and dad takes participation plaque off and writes champs on it.

    This commercial break: White space cadet kid who is a benchwarmer with mom hoping he may become a football commentator because her kid sucks at football and dumb clueless dad saying this is great.

    Madison Avenue at its finest. I guarantee Cuckservative blogs tomorrow will be praising both.

    Lions also had an unusual situation, so rare it may be in the Guinness Book of Records, for at least one play they had an all white backfield, QB Orlovsky, FB Burton, RB Zach Zenner. Call it a "snowstorm" for ease of remembering. The last time that rare event happened was the same year Haley's comet was visible, naw not that rare, probably the Vikings a few years ago when Gerhart was getting carries, I think they had a white FB and a white QB at that time.

    Anquan Bolden scores on a short TD catch, so naturally, the camera pans to white DT, Markus Kuhn. Kuhn really sucks at covering WR's!

    A few plays before, Carlos Hyde broke off a long run and the camera instinctively panned to white safety, Craig Dahl, who made the open-field tackle. Why is that white guy out there anyway?!

    The pan-to-the-nearest-white-defender camera trick has been employed by broadcasters since I began watching football in the mid 90's.

    Uncle Cris is Kaepernick's personal cheerleader. Its incessant. Are we surprised. No.

    I remember how in the 2012 draft Claiborne was called the best defensive player in the draft. This was the year the "unathletic" Luke Kuechly came out.

    Guess they were wrong.

    The Seahawks lost again.

    When the Seahawks acquired Jimmy Graham the mainstream media was saying they might go undefeated.

    Guess they were wrong.

    It looks like this week's white qb that needs to go is Matthew Stafford. The issues in Detroit have nothing to do with their AA GM, AA coach or lack of talent. It's all staffords fault. Hopefully Zenner gets a chance to bring some balance to the offense since none of the upside laden affletes at the postion are doing much of anything. Their tight ends are
    putrid as well - not to mention the coal black defense.

    "Slot receiver" Rex Burkhead gets 1 carry for -2 yards and a lost fumble. It was a stupid, end-around handoff and the defender was already in the backfield and knocked the ball out before Burkhead could secure it.

    Collinsworth was making me sick last night; at times, clearly making up non-sense to prop up Kaepernick. The problem is, even at his best, Kaepernick is still only about the 20th best qb in the league. These commentators keep talking about him as though he's this elite talent that's having a down year. This is NOT news; he's always been bad. It's just that the 49ers can't hide it anymore.

    Very nice day for our guys.

    Firstly, Edelman’s “ankle breaker” juke move against the black CB, Claiborne, is being discussed all over the internet. It’s a great exhibition in white athletic prowess…

    [​IMG]

    Through 4 games, “JE11” has compiled 34 catches, 400 yards, and 3 TD’s. He’s on pace for his best season by far. With 70 yards, Gronkowski had a “down” week. Look for the leviathan TE to rebound against the lowly all-black Colts secondary, who he habitually abuses…

    [​IMG]

    It was nice to see the Browns defeat the Ravens. The surprise of the season, TE Gary Barnidge, made another amazing TD catch. He’s compiled 24 catches, 374 yards and 3 TD’s. At age 30, his “racial apprenticeship” is officially over…

    [​IMG]

    Bengals TE, Tyler Eifert, continues to amaze (8 catches, 90 yards, 2 TD’s). He has 312 yards and 5 TD’s already. Let’s hope he can stay on track and achieve his first 1,000-yard campaign. The team that Eifert abused, the Seahawks, lost and are now 2-3. Did losing the Superbowl to the lily-white Patriots permanently castrate this undeniably-great defense? I won’t count out this vile squad until they are officially eliminated.

    The African Lions continue their woes, hopefully forcing the team to give RB Zach Zenner more opportunities with the season all but lost anyway.

    The Eagles looked better in a win, with Bradford utilizing Cooper, Ertz, and Celek much more…

    [​IMG]

    Bills WR, Chris Hogan, led the team in receiving and scored the winning TD. What else does this frequent cast-off need to do to prove he should be an NFL starter?

    [video=youtube;TroOdjqDdos]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TroOdjqDdos[/video]

    I'm hoping for a huge outing for Danny Woodhead tonight against the always-detestable Steelers.

    Even without the great Jordy Nelson, it seems that 2015 could yield numerous white 1,000-yard receivers (Edelman, Gronkowski, Decker, Barnidge, Olsen, Kelce, Eifert, Witten), should they all continue at their current pace. It would be a nice silver lining after losing the best WR in the game.

    At one point Uncle Al said that Kaepernick had been "brilliant" in the second half. Meantime, Eli Manning's eye-popping numbers -- 41 of 54 for 441 yards and 3 TDs -- were barely mentioned. How often does a black QB even remotely approach those kind of numbers, yet it was treated matter of factly when a White quarterback achieved them.

    Jon Gruden interviews Woodhead: You were great in high school, but you weren't recruited. You were great in college, but you weren't invited to the combine or drafted. Everybody told you were too White to play running back...yeah right, it was because you were too small...because we all know that all running backs are black, err I mean big.

    That Edelman play was pretty amazing - imagine if he was black - it would be all over BSPN

    Can anyone explain to me why the Chargers are passing to Melvin Gordon? You have perhaps the best pass-catching RB on the planet in Woodhead who already has 2 catches for 41 yards and you keep passing to Gordon for -1 yard. Insanity.

    It's been that way all season thus far. Gordon gets them in a hole (or fumbles), then Danny saves them on 3rd down, despite his precious few opportunities. He's literally open at all times.

    It's been universally agreed upon that Woodhead isn't an "every down" back...but how do we know that when he's never been treated like one? He rarely carries the ball and is essentially a slot receiver that plays out of the backfield. I won't complain about it too much...at least he's being used!

    The Chargers offensive line is atrocious. They need to replace several of those sumos.

    Woodhead already has 5 receptions for 66 yards in the 1st Half..he needs 15-20 touches(rushing & receiving) every game..but only has one carry so far...unacceptable!

    The 2-2 Chargers Win more when he carries the ball....21 carries in the wins...but only 12 in losses..

    How bout the one-handed snag as he was headed out of bounds! Dynamic playmaker! Gruden keeps talking him up...& rightly so!

    Gary Barnidge Props for Catch of the Day..& impressive numbers lately! ...remember him being more like a big-WR at Louisville 6'-5" 4.6 in the 40...good to see the success...better late than never i suppose,

    Berman loving him some ankle-breaking moves by Edelman!

    SD offensive is not clicking. I thought this was going to be blow out. Woodhead is doing well thus far.

    They looked good in the second half until Melvin Gordon fumbled. Hopefully Woodhead gets some carries.
